Birdcage at Lord and Taylor: The Shop-in-a-Shop

How fun is it to host a party for 900 of the chicest New Yorkers? Let’s just say days like these make me love my job! The launch of shop-in-a-shop Birdcage was one of the best events I’ve ever had the pleasure of being involved with.

Roberto Cavalli Bag

Roberto Cavalli Orb Gold Metallic Leather Clutch: Party Animal

Who knew I was a sucker for amphibians? We know (and sometimes love) Roberto Cavall for his enduring passion for wildcats and jungle creatures, but apparently his appreciation of animals reaches all over the kingdom. These frog toggles are just too cute to take a pass on.

Alice + Olivia Bag

Alice + Olivia Present Box Leather Shoulder Bag: Good Things Come in Wrapped Packages

What’s better than a present that is actually a present? Forget the bows, ribbons, and wrapping paper…and Scotch tape, scissors, and fumbling hands. When your bag is designed to look like a glamorous little gift box, every day will feel like Christmas or your birthday.

Christopher Kane Bag

Christopher Kane Safety Buckle Leather Tote: Playing It Safe

I will always love the use of cool hardware, especially on a super-functional tote. The “safety buckle” motif is now almost as famous as the designer himself, Christopher Kane, or at least intrinsically linked to his designs, from his wild, belted dresses from Spring ’07 to this season’s smaller, sleeker bags.

Trompe L’oeil Bags

Trompe-L’oeil Bags: Tricks Up Your Sleeve

While the adage, “things aren’t always as they seem,” may be old, it applies to some of the freshest designs out there. In English, trompe l’oeil translates to “deceives the eye,” and these designers make that deception one that you’ll welcome with a smile.

Alexander Wang x H&M

Alexander Wang x H&M: Active Imagination

Between Target and H&M collaborations, designer fashion is more accessible than ever, and those collections are just getting better all the time. If you thought Isabel Marant’s H&M tour de force was highly anticipated, then there’s not even a word to describe the mania that’s about to ensue for Alex Wang.
